Hey guys, Chris, and I'm going to show you how to draw a cute skull. So basically what I'm going to do is, I'm going to start off with the top of the head here and go around like that, and then you got to go for the jawline. But for this one I'm going to make it a little bit rounded, so your going to go like that, so it almost looks like a keyhole, with a rounded edge at the bottom for the chin. Now maybe you want to make him look like he's looking to the side, but skulls have very sunken eyes, we're making a cute skull, so we're going to try to make it as cute as possibly here. And basically you can give him any kind of human features you want, and don't be afraid to ever to erase, if you guys make a mistake or do something you don't think you like right away, you can definitely take care of that if you're working with a pencil. So for the eyes I'm going to give him a little bit of a human feature, kind of like throwing a little bit of an eyebrow at the top there, maybe he's smiling as well, so what I'm going to do is, I'm just going to draw a little bit of a line going down that way, and then just draw a little bit of a line kind of going down like that, just making one side a little bit higher, then I'm going to connect these two at the bottom, and then draw the teeth, maybe I'm drawing a little bit of a dimple there, and then you can't forget the nose, which is almost a little bit of a triangle shape, and you can kind of just put that in the middle, you can make it a little bit bigger, a little bit smaller, kind of however you want. If you want you can also put some lines on the outside, make his eyes a little bit bigger. I mean he is a cute skull, so i mean he doesn't have to have as sunken eyes as a regular skull does. He's a little bit of a happy guy, so what I'm going to do is, maybe I'm going to give him a bow tie, and doing a bow tie you just going to do a couple of triangles on both sides, if you want you can put a couple of lines in there showing that it kind of folds in the bow tie. And there you go guys, that's your basic happy, cute skull.
